Anyone out there getting more and more anonymous comments on their blogs?
I have been painstakingly deleting them without opening but this week decided to pop them into my spam folder - I have had 38 since Sunday.
I hate word verification but I get cross at all these emails, the spammers don't even have the sense to make their comments on recent blog post titles, so obvious that they are rubbish.
Recently I felt a bit empowered by taking action on the constant stream of telephone cold callers. We have been members of the Telephone Preference Service for ages but in the last couple of years this has not prevented these nuisance calls.
I signed up for BT Caller display so now every time the phone rings I check to see if it's a number I know - I get 5 or 6 a day where it says "Number unknown", "number withheld" or just a plain old number that I don't recognise. I don't answer and the call always stops after 3 rings, presumably their computer has found someone else who answers quicker.
So now I don't have to explain in detail why I don't want solar panels, a new kitchen or to make a claim for mis-sold financial whatsits!!
Now I just have to deal with doorstepper, not such a problem.
Climbing down from my soapbox now..........
